Help our Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) HQ rebuild from the fire:
The fire at MCDP HQ may have burned the Office building and the memorabilia inside of it, but our mission continues to turn our state blue. If you can help out with funds, consider donating to a special fire relief fund which has been setup to help us rebuild. http://Maricopadems.org/recoveryfund
Yard Signs for our LD20 Legislative candidates!
Get your very own set of yard signs which you can proudly display on your front yard or along your patio balcony at any time. Contact Mary Fortney at [email protected] and have it delivered to your front door! Dog not included.
Be a poll worker – help preserve Democracy!
Maricopa County Democratic Party (MCDP) is looking for volunteers who can help out at the polls by being a poll watcher. Your role would be to observe the activities at the polls and report back any incidents of voter intimidation. It’s imperative that everyone who wants to vote, be able to vote and not feel threatened by anyone. MCDP will provide training. This year, more than ever, this activity will be critical to preserve our democracy. If you can help out, please contact: Janet Wilson at [email protected] and provide your name, address, & phone #. Thank you.
